This paper is devoted to circular migration between Poland and Ukraine. Poland has no official policy on circular migration but the regulations existing encourage this type of migrants’ mobility. In the case of Central Eastern Europe, circularity has become a way of life for a large part of migrants. Migrants act here as family or household members rather than as individuals. There are two basic types of Ukrainian circular migrants in Poland: firstly, there are labour migrants who spontaneously choose circularity as an option for modernising their households in Ukraine, to collect money for their own business or provide money for their households without leaving their families for too long. Secondly, there are migrants who are engaged in circularity due to the lack of the entrepreneurial spirit and policy constrains. Furthermore, circularity seems to be the female domain.
